Introducing Demola Cape Town

Demola South Africa, with its first location in Cape Town, is facilitated by mLab Southern Africa and supported by the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).

Demola Cape Town’s Talent is recruited from a number of Universities, FET colleges and design schools in and around Cape Town and includes the University of Cape Town (UCT), Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) and University of Western Cape (UWC).

mLab Southern Africa runs the DEMOLA at its premises at the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town, in the Workshop17 Portswood extension.

During the first season the DEMOLA also incorporates a dedicated thematic theme for mHealth & Wellness innovation supported by the CSIR with the aim of stimulating innovation within this sector.
